Panasonic Lumix TZ7 Digital Camera Review

Posted on Jul 8 2010 - 12:47pm by Richard Sharp

Everyone has different needs when it comes to camera shopping. Some people want a cheap, virtually disposable one which they can take on holiday and then forget about until next year. Then there are the camera fiends who love to spend hours poring over their settings and gently agonising over shutter speeds. The Panasonic Lumix TZ7 looks to me like one for someone in the middle of those two groups. At first glance this one might be a good choice for someone who wants a good camera, will get good use out of it and look after it well but isn´t overly concerned about doing too much technical fiddling themselves. Let’s look at some of the details to see if I am right.

Design

There is a 3 inch LCD with wide viewing facility, which should be more than adequate for most people’s needs. The camera itself is nicely presented, attractive and slimline without appearing fragile or gimmicky. The normal Panasonic Lumix TZ7 Digital Camera comes in black, brown and silver while there is also a special edition in a daring red colour.

Notable Specifications

12X optical zoom, 25mm ultra wide angle lens and HD Movie Recording are all good features which will help you take better photos and movies. This model also comes with the scary sounding Advanced Intelligent Auto Mode with Face Recognition. I am going to try and fool it by putting on a variety of different disguises, just to prove that I can still outwit machines.

Value

Have a look online and you will see that around 200 of ye olde English pounds are enough for you to buy this little beauty.

Summary

Anyone looking to take great pictures and HD videos with a minimum of fuss will be tempted by this one. The Panasonic Lumix TZ7 Digital Camera is attractive, good value, easy to use and has a lot of good features.
